Dear Project Supporters, 

Thank you for your ongoing support that has helped multiple vocational trainees at the Baptist Women’s Vocational Training Center. Trainees at the Center are working hard to create a better future for themselves and their families. Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) is one of the three main priorities outlined by UNESCO and has been identified as the focus for the most important annual report on education, the Global Monitoring Report, in 2012.

Students are being trained and empowered in skills like tailoring, adult literacy, catering, Gara Tyre dying, soap making and Craft & handwork. These skills are an effective intervention that combats poverty and increases the strength of local economies further uplifting the people of Sierra Leone. See examples in the photos below from the current students at the Vocational Training Center.

Your generosity is truly making an impact on the staff and students at the Baptist Tailoring Institute. The students are learning skills that will help them be self-sufficient and provide for their families. We welcome your continued support in making a difference in the lives of more vocational students. We encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation here. Even a few dollars a month will go a long way. Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.  

 

With great appreciation,

Amy & the Develop Africa Team

We are truly grateful for your ongoing support that most recently helped support teachers at the Vocational Tailoring Institute.  The teachers had not received a salary in several months and were very thankful for your generous support.   One of the teachers expressed her gratitude in this video saying-

On behalf of the Baptist Tailoring Institute, I want to say a big thank you to Develop Africa for your wonderful support towards our salaries

The students in the video said-  Thank you Develop Africa for supporting our teachers

Dear Project Supporters,  

Thanks to support from generous donors like you, the Generation 21 Vocational Training School and Salon was able to purchase some new supplies including a hair dryer, mannequin, hairspray, and flat irons.

One of the instructors at the Generation 21 Vocational Training School and Salon explains in this video how the new supplies will be used and expresses her gratitude in the video saying,

This is a flat iron, it will be used by the students to practice on their client’s hair. This is called olive spray and is used to spray on their client’s hair. This is called a mannequin.   A mannequin is basically used for students to sew a weave on, which will be used for their clients.    This is a hair dryer to dry the wet hair of the client they are working with.

On behalf of Youth for Christ Serra Leone and Generation 21 Vocational Training Centre and Salon, I want to say thank you to Develop Africa. God bless you! 

 

Your ongoing support would be greatly appreciated.  We encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation here.  Even a few dollars a month will go a long way.  Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.    If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.

    Dear Project Supporters,

    We are delighted to report that thanks to your ongoing support, Susan has graduated as a cosmetologist.  Susan was able to complete her basic curriculum and get computer training through the Creating Pathways Centre after the birth of her baby in 2015 thanks to generous donors. She then enrolled at the Generation 21 Vocational Training Center for Cosmetology thanks to the ongoing support she received from donors like you.  

    Susan has now graduated and is looking forward to her future as a cosmetologist.  She expressed her heartfelt thanks for helping her not only to complete her basic education and get computer training but to additionally send her to cosmetology school. Your generosity has made a lifelong impact on Susan and their family.  We welcome your continued support in making a difference in the lives of more vocational students.

     

    With great appreciation,
